I have two cards to show you which I made for Mother's Day this year.
This first one I made for my Mum. The heart and the embellishments were from a K & Co. Smitten kit. I bought it years ago but as it was a Valentine photo card kit I never used it. I couldn't really see Hubby appreciating it! Anyway, this year I realised it would make a fab Mother's Day card so I set about transforming it.
Instead of a photo I used the "To the World" Clarity stamp. As the challenge says, "It's all in the sentiment" and that one was perfect.
I changed the Valentine's Day embellishment to Happy Mother's Day which I had printed out on my computer.
I had some 12x12 papers in the same Smitten design so I used them to make a similar card for my Mother-in-law.
The sentiment is stamped onto one of the Spellbinders Floral Ovals Nestabilities. Then I've used various other dies to decorate the card. I had a bit of a problem with the edging as I just couldn't get it to cut through the patterned paper and the card I'd stuck it to. Luckily I had some old Fiskars punches in a similar sized heart and circle, so I finished it off with those.

Clarity have so many lovely sentiment stamps, sometimes they are all you need to make a beautiful, heartfelt card. It's all in the sentiment after all.
Congratulations to the winner and Top 5 of the "In the Garden" challenge. I really enjoyed looking at all of the entries and I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge. Good luck!
